    Default Booster seat advise

    Hi there,

    DS (4.5 yrs) is bordering being too tall/heavy for his car seat. We need to buy a booster seat for him but I'd rather not have one that uses the adult lap sash only. Also, my car is a tiny Holden Barina. Any recommendations?

    TIA

    Maybe a rallye from big w I think? They have high markers so he would be able to remain harnessed.

    Hi liners and encore 10 are some of the highest on the market with additional side impact air protect in the head rest and an anti submarining clip. So the lap sash becomes more stable and anchored across their waist as well as stops them slipping under the lap sash part in a collision. It's similar in style to a five point harness, but using the lap sash and the anchor clip.

    This maybe useful. Just measure him sitting from top of shoulders to bottom of his bottom. Good luck

    The seats with the highest inbuilt harness ability are the maxi rider easy adjust and any of the infasecure convertible boosters. The maxi rider is narrower but pricier. Big w has an infa one on special for $126 in the toy sale. I'd be inclined to try him in them and see how he fits.

    Comfi Caprice or Rallye is great if it fits, otherwise the MREA is narrow. Both high markers for harnessing.
